Great gumbo and really yummy fresh seafood. Steak also was very good and flavorful! My husband and I ordered different items and shared and there was a lot of food to share and enjoy. Nice view of the bay and outdoor seating is plentiful if you are interested. Excellent service and all in all a really nice dining experience!

We ordered the seafood platter, chicken Alfredo, seafood gumbo and the Cajun throw down. The gumbo was amazing. It was a nice stop before we went on our Dolphin tour. It was raining and the restaurant was nice. For desert I ordered Flippers Favorite. My husband loved the Cajun Throwdown.

Good food and a good view too! We've been coming here for years. It has indoor and outdoor seating. It's nice to sit outside with a view on the marina.

Flippers is great for sitting on the dock of the bay. My grandchildren love to go here and see the boats come in and out. The food is always good. Service is good.
